These earrings are an homage to one of the guiding principles of the Bauhaus architectural movement, that all objects can be formed by simple shapes, the triangle, circle and square. You can see these motifs in Walter Gropius' houses, Marianne Brandt's teapot, Wassily Kandinsky's paintings and in the works of many other Bauhaus artists. In 1923, Kandinsky, an instructor at the Bauhaus school, distributed a questionnaire asking which of the primary colors should represent each of these basic forms. The consensus was that the triangle should be assigned the color yellow, the circle blue and the square red. These motifs became an enduring symbol of the Bauhaus. In honor of this revolutionary artistic movement, which celebrates its 100th birthday in 2019, I've designed a pendant incorporating a triangle, circle and square. This jewelry is printed in interlocking cast metal so that the circle and square swing freely in relation to the triangle.

The earrings are 1.65 cm (0.65 inches) long below the loop and are light and comfortable to wear. They will be assembled with nickel-free sterling silver or goldplated silver hooks.

The earrings are 3D printed in highly polished, interlocking solid sterling silver (as shown), brass or bronze and finished with nickel-free sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver to match.
